Carrousel

A Film by Sophie Kluge

Synopsis

The Film tells the story of Clara who falls in love with Gaspard, a young man from Paris. She knows that it is a risky plan, when she decides to go to the city of love and light to surprise him.

Gaspard is not there. She waits and wonders about, still hoping to meet him but he is nowhere to be found. Paris can be just as sad and lonely as it can be beautiful, if you have the wrong expectations.

Carrousel is about missed opportunities, false longings and at the same time it is a declaration of love to Berlin and Paris.
